I love nothing more than a good wish list.
And, over the years, I’ve heard a lot:
"Only north and east exposure but perhaps one room with southwest exposure".
"A room in the condo with sufficient ceiling height for an indoor golf driving range."
"Must have a built-in pasta water boiler."
"A dog grooming/hospitality station."
No matter the price range, it’s often difficult to get everything on your wish list. But we’ll try. And I’ll help you weigh the pros and cons of what you can live with and what you can live without. Your home should work for you when you are home - most of the time. Do you really need a formal dining room if you only formally entertain for one holiday dinner a year? Are separate guest suites really necessary when you don’t have guests, like ever? Is a 10-burner cook-top (with built-in griddle) a must-have when all you do is order in?
So, get your wish list ready and let’s figure it out together!
Watch films at Sundance Film Festival
As reported by Jason Bailey in the New York Times, attending the Sundance Film Festival has never been an easy thing to do. Passes are pricey, accommodations are even pricier, the closest airport is nearly an hour away, and you end up waiting in long lines (in Utah, in January) for screenings — at least for the ones that haven’t sold out (which most do).
But like so many film festivals in the Covid era, Sundance, which started yesterday, has gone virtual. So while that means there’s no chance of randomly encountering celebrities in the bathroom (well, less of a chance), it does mean that anyone who can scrounge up $15 — the price of a single film ticket — can attend. You won’t even have to put on long johns and snow boots, unless that's your thing.
With all the snow on the ground and another blizzard on the way, we're sure you're looking for some outdoor action. And if you're looking for an intense sledding experience, don't think that Chicago can't provide hills to give you a thrill. Check out these spots
that offer some of the best downhill action in the area—for kids and parents alike. Before you head out and play in the snow, please check to make sure they're open.
